A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on exploring, learning, and time

At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

Philosophy when superficially studied, excites doubt, when thoroughly explored, it dispels it.

A Quote by Derek Bok on curiosity, decisions, doubt, education, entertainment, exploring, tolerance, and uncertainty

An educated man must have a "curiosity in exploring the unfamiliar and unexpected, an open-mindedness in entertaining opposing points of view, tolerance for the ambiguity that surrounds so many important issues, and a willingness to make the best decisions he can in the face of uncertainty and doubt."

Derek Bok

A Quote by David Whyte on discovery and exploring

Some things cannot be spoken or discovered until we have been stuck, incapacitated, or blown off course for awhile. Plain sailing is pleasant, but you are not going to explore many unknown realms that way.

A Quote by Christopher McDowell on beauty, change, colors, evolution, exploring, garden, intuition, language, learning, love, motherhood, nature, personality, personality, reflection, soul, surprises, teachers, and time

It takes time and devotion to learn the language of color and lighting in the garden. Your tastes are sure to change over time, reflecting your inner evolution. Seeing the garden as a canvas for your celebration of Nature's palette is a wonderful expression of the soul's love of beauty and artistry. Your own inner intuition, however, is often your best teacher, but don't forget that Mother Nature will always have a few surprises up Her sleeve as well. Perhaps your greatest insight will be that this glorious exploration of light and color and their interrelationship is really meant to illuminate the many facets of your being and personality.

A Quote by Christopher McDowell on beauty, exploring, garden, journeys, peace, practicality, soul, and spirituality

Beyond its practical aspects, gardening - be it of the soil or soul - can lead us on a philosophical and spiritual exploration that is nothing less than a journey into the depths of our own sacredness and the sacredness of all beings. After all, there must be something more mystical beyond the garden gate, something that satisfies the soul's attraction to beauty, peace, solace, and celebration.

A Quote by Charles Wesley on angels, boldness, christ, death, design, divinity, earth, emptiness, eternity, exploring, fatherhood, god, grace, heart, immortality, interest, jesus, life, love, mercy, mystery, nature, pain, and spirit

And can it be that I should gain an interest in the Savior's blood? Died He for me, who caused His pain-- for me, who Him to death pursued? Amazing love! how can it be that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me? 'Tis mystery all! Th' Immortal dies: Who can explore His strange design? In vain the first-born seraph tries to sound the depths of love divine. 'Tis mercy all! let earth adore, let angel minds inquire no more. He left His Father's throne above,-- so free, so infinite His grace-- emptied Himself of all but love, and bled for Adam's helpless race: 'Tis mercy all, immense and free; for, O my God, it found out me! Long my imprisoned spirit lay Fast bound in sin and nature's night; Thine eye diffused a quickening ray,-- I woke, the dungeon flamed with light; my chains fell off, my heart was free, I rose, went forth, and followed Thee. No condemnation now I dread; Jesus, and all in Him, is mine! Alive in Him, my living Head, and clothed in righteousness divine, Bold I approach the eternal throne, and claim the crown, thorugh Christ my own.

Charles Wesley (1707 - 1788)

A Quote by Carl Edward Sagan on belief, curiosity, existence, exploring, gifts, god, intelligence, passion, and universe

My deeply held belief is that if a god of anything like the traditional sort exists, our curiosity and intelligence is provided by such a God. We would be unappreciative of that gift . . . if we suppressed our passion to explore the universe and ourselves.

Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)
